Multicultural Counselor Training Experiences: Training Effects and Perceptions of Training among a Sample of Predominately Hispanic Students
Dickson, Ginger L.; Argus-Calvo, Beverley; Tafoya, Nancy Garcia
Counselor Education and Supervision, v49 n4 p247-265 Jun 2010
The effectiveness of multicultural training among a sample of predominately Hispanic counseling students was examined. The results of a series of 2-factor repeated measures analysis of variance and follow-up paired-samples t tests suggest that multicultural training was effective in increasing students' multicultural competencies and in improving their cognitive racial attitudes. Students' affective racial attitudes were not changed. Students' perceptions of their multicultural training suggest that students from diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds may experience multicultural training differently and unique life experiences may help explain this difference. Counselor educators may wish to use a variety of training experiences to provide multicultural training that is effective across diverse student populations.
